... (and as Futurama's Central Bureaucracy notes, "technically correct is the best kind of correct"), the Changeling - in the guise of Charles Xavier - was the first member of the X-Men to be killed in action. Which a lot of people seem to have forgotten. But even if John Proudstar was the second X-Man to be killed in action, one would think he would be revived on Krakoa. Even if some of the other X-Men (I'm looking at you, Logan!) would be jerkish enough to then keep reminding him how stupid he was in his death. O\:\-\)

Note: I say technically because at the time of his death only Professor X and Jean Grey, the organizers of the switch, knew that the Changeling had taken Xavier's place on the team, while the others were kept in the dark until the return of Professor X several issues later. (The real story was, of course, that this story was a retcon to undo Charles Xavier's first death).

Still, you'd think his little brother, being an X-Man and all, would constantly remind them that John is still among the dead. Unless James didn't really care for John either, which is possible, I suppose.

...and while googling to ensure that James and John actually were brothers (I was 90% sure), I found this on wiki:

"When the X-Men made Krakoa a mutant paradise, the resurrection protocols brought back many dead mutants including Thunderbird. He was seen at The Green Lagoon watching Dazzler's concert."

Maybe John left Krakoa. He died there, after all, so it wouldn't have the happiest memories.
